Halloween costumes are getting more and more amazing. The effort some people seem to be putting into trying to look like a corpse is baffling to me. Some people, of course, need more effort than others to begin with. Personally, I think I wouldn’t need a costume this year to look like a Zombie, because I’m just living through the most sleep-deprived stage of my life right now. As some of you may have heard, I’ve become a father for the second time, a few weeks ago. And it’s amazing at how being drained and exhausted, while at the same time being happy can be taken to an even higher level than with one kid.
Well, anyway, we wish all of you zombies, corpses, witches, ghosts and monsters out there, real or not, a very happy Halloween!
Wow! Messing with Julio’s tools … again! Chuck just never learns it seems. He is a little like my wife there who still hasn’t understood how mad I get when she doesn’t put my tools back where she finds them. At least she is somewhat predictable and puts them all in the same spot (with HER tools) unlike Chuck who has a different idea each time.
Now be honest guys! Haven’t we all been there? Who can honestly say they have never “sampled” the loot of their kids or maybe tested a few candy items “just to make sure it’s ok” before you give it out for Halloween? I admit I’m guilty on both accounts!
Who of you have great Halloween candy stories? Let’s hear them!
This reminds me of the time when my brother cut into the muscle and tendon betwwen his thumb and index finger of his left hand. He must have been around 16 or 17 at that time and was working on his radio controlled model plane in the basement. Somehow he slipped with a cuttern knife and wham! cut himself right down to the bone. It took forever to heal. The whole situation wasn’t as funny as it looks in this comic strip though! So remember, kids: Be careful when handling tools!
This week will be our Halloween Week here at Chicken Wings. We found ourselves talking about what seems to be Americas Biggest Holiday Event (even though it’s not an official holiday) and next thing we know, we had enough strips to do a whole week and send some more to our magazines as well.
Last year we couldn’t think of a single strip about Halloween. It’s always funny to me how you can’t force the creative juices.
So, Happy Halloween everybody!
It seems Julio doesn’t only have a knack for fixing airplanes, but also knows how to treat women and make them feel special!
Also, the Halloween Contest is still on until the end of the week!
Think up another punchline for the skeleton strip and post it in our forum!
